Comply Story

Engineered For Perfection. Designed For Life.

Comply™ makes the world’s best replacement earbud tips delivering an unapparelled experience that silicone tips can't match.

Comply was founded in 1990 by accomplished biochemist and inventor Robert Oliveira, Ph.D.

Oliveira worked at 3M for 18 years developing products ranging from biochemical diagnostics to surgical instruments. A world-renowned ear canal expert, Oliveira also led a team who developed the world’s first FDA-approved cochlear implant.

Decades of research went into Comply, including a deep understanding of how the shape and opening of the ear canal changes as one’s jaw opens and closes, and how the ear canal changes with weight, age, and even level of hydration.

The rise of earbuds – especially the stratospheric rise of wireless earbuds over the last several years – came with three common complaints:

  • The earbuds hurt to wear, especially over long periods of time.
  • The earbuds fall out.
  • The earbuds don’t deliver the sound quality that real audiophiles expect from traditional over-ear headphones.

Several inexpensive, cheaply made replacement tips hit the market, but none of them provided a real fix. Comply changed all that. With patented memory foam engineered to stay in and stay comfortable while providing maximum noise isolation, Comply tips stand head and shoulders above the rest of the market.

Our mission: protect and preserve hearing while transforming how the world listens.

Our vision: to be the world’s #1 connection to the ear, creating a space where customers experience no hearing loss and no sore hears, hearing exactly what they want, whenever they want, for as long as they want.

Comply tips are compatible with thousands of devices and are used by musicians, recording engineers, athletes, and millions of everyday people who want to listen better and listen longer. In high-noise environments, Comply™ has become the standard for many communication systems used in military and industrial settings.

The company that makes Comply tips, Hearing Components, has been awarded several sizable research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
